Dj Sourmilk of the Los Angeles Leakers dropped this on the web yesterday, the description of the mix alone had me cracking up because it is often that everyone has an opinion on how a mix should work, facts, blah blah blah. Sourmilk in short told you to just stfu and listen!!
So I got this idea last year and I wanted to see if I could actually follow through with it the whole year. I wanted to do a Hip-Hop Yearbook. Starting with 1989, every month, release a new mix for a new year. Jan is 89, Feb is 90, etc. Now I know what I’m getting myself into with all the Hip-Hop nerds out there. You guys are gonna tear me apart (selection wise). “How did you not put ____ on the 1990 mix?!” I’m just picking songs that I currently have in my Serato, give me a break. I’m sure there’s gonna be songs that I’m missing, but fuck you. I’m doing the mix, NOT YOU! You’re also gonna say, “But that song wasn’t released in 89!” For example, “Fight the Power” was on Fear of a Black Planet and that came out in 1990. Yes, it was. It was also on the Do the Right Thing Soundtrack though, which was released in 1989. Anyway, enough explaining. I’ll post a new mix (hopefully) at the end of every month until the year is over. I’m starting with 1989, so that download link is below. Please feel free to pass along, blog, blast, or delete if you don’t like it. THANK YOU!
